Display Search Results in GridView

How would I go about displaying search results in a gridview.  My confusion is centered around the fact that when the page loads there is no data to display until a search is performed.  I have two thoughts on this. Put a literal in as a place holder and then in the code behind for the search button create the datasource and write out all the asp code for the datagrid to the literal.  My other thought is to have the gridview in the default.aspx but marked as not visible.  Then when I perform the search set the datasourceid property and mark it visible. I am not sure if this is possible since I am not seeing any sort of a bind method.

I am sure this is a very common task so there must be a good way to do this. 

thanks in advance.

A gridview allows you to set a template for when no data is available - so you can display a message.

You can simply set the gridview visible=false - so it wont even get rendered to the client

If it was easy, everybody would be doing it.

Displaying randomised search results in GridView
I have an MS-SQL Stored Procedure that returns search results in a random order each time it is executed. These results are displayed in a GridView through an SqlDataSource control but I've discovered a problem with results that span across more than one page on the GridView. If a link in the pager is selected, sometimes a result appears that was also on another page. Of course, what's happening is that each time a link in the pager is selected, it executes the stored procedure and gets another set of random search results which leads to some results appearing on different pages. So what I...

Displaying "Sorry there were no results for your search" for a search that yields no results
Hello, I've got an SQL datasource and a GridView control on a page called textsearch.aspx (in a VS web application). The text that the user is searching for is passed in as a querystring - e.g. if the user searches for "clematis" he's navigated to textsearch.aspx?Search=clematis. This all works fine as long as there is something that's called "clematis" (or whatevers being search for) in my database. However, if there are no matches in my database nothing is displayed (except for what's on my master page). I need to be able to display a message which says something to the effect of "Sorry...
